Year 7 Trip to Lulworth Cove


Year 7 Trip to Lulworth Cove

On Tuesday Year 7 ventured southwest to the beautiful Jurassic Coastline. On arrival, they were met by an informative Lulworth Ranger who explained the main features of the area, as well as highlighting why the region is a World Heritage Site. Pupils then visited Stair Hole and Lulworth Cove itself, learning about the geology and formation of each landform. They were introduced to the idea of erosion and how it is constantly affecting the coastline. After a picnic lunch and a quick ice cream, Year 7 braced themselves for the uphill coastal path to Durdle Door. The views were breath taking and a welcome break was taken so that the famous arch could be sketched and appreciated. After the downhill walk back to the coach, we started the long journey home. Happy but tired after a busy and informative day.
